First of all thank you for this service. It looks very promising. Just a couple of questions though

1. How are you planning to keep going? (Funding)
2. Anyway to use IMAP or is there an upcoming smartphone app?

1. After polishing initial bugs, so I can establish reliable service, and acquire users, I'm planing to offer paid subscriptions with some extra features as bigger mail boxes, longer message retention time, ability to send delayed messages and a lot more.
2. Offering IMAP wont be an option as service use frontend encryption. So yes, app is something to think about.

Thanks for interest

Password is just for ability to retrieve encrypted user data, you wont be able to do anything without knowing secret phrase. secret phrase limited to 80 characters.

It wouldn't accept a secret word longer than 30 characters.

Seems like scryptmail is US based (Washignton)..

Also, one can read in their terms of service the following bit:

"You grant to scryptmail.com a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, adapt, publish, translate and distribute your user content in any existing or future media. You also grant to scryptmail.com the right to sub-license these rights, and the right to bring an action for infringement of these rights."

Is this normal? I'm not sure if other providers have something like that in their TOS.



Also, some questions for scryptmail:

- Is ScryptMail a 1-man job?

- What are the limitations of the present account? What will be the limits of future accounts? (aliases, space, bandwidth, own-domain, etc etc..) You should create a page that explains this.

- Are you open-source? I think you're not.. You cannot claim to provide secure encryption methods and be closed-source, imo. (Specially a 1-man job)

1000 is email limit per box, basic account. As other services limit you per size, like 1Gb or more, this indirectly means, they know what messages is yours and what size they are. In future we plan to roll more plans with bigger limits

That is very legit questions and concerns.
We USA based. But let me refer to you, that claiming if we Canada based or other country won't really means more protection, but confusion. Hush mail, grandfather of "email encryption" Disclosure of account data -If we receive an order enforceable under the laws of British Columbia, Canada, compelling us to disclose account data for a specific user account. This type of information hidden in Privacy Police, when they statement of user encryption at front page. Indeed, few years ago they actually did disclose user information to USA agency.

Another companies located in Switzerland, they refer to strong privacy law over there, but let me ask, why more that 10% of their bank easily disclose private financial info about American citizens, without any court order. And how such services, when developers living in USA will protect your data more that Switzerland based banks? My answer would be, nit much at all.

In other hand we had Lavabit or Silent Circle, which was USA based, and they indeed shutdown service, instead of leaking user data.

--

My opinion, they trying to sell service under false pretenses.

Scryptmail is one man job, but better say one man start-up. During design stage I worked with my friend who helped me a lot in order to design seed email approach, and uncover majority of current email downsides. Unfortunately he wasn't able to invest his time in this project. My goal is to grow this into reliable company.

Right now Limits are 1000 mail per box, 5 recipient per email. More features will be disclosed upon readiness. Paid plans will include more features like time delay to send message and bigger boxes.

I'm planing to go open source. right now my code is a mess, i'm trying to eliminate most obvious bugs and about December put code on github for public review.

Idk, honestly I used TOS generator, sorry no money for lawyers yet.

Thank you for reading

OP is indicating the service is "USA based", but the posts are indicating (to me anyway) that English is not the OP's first language.

I'm not sure what you referring to when you say amateur-ish. But if you have any questions regarding my product, please don't hesitate to send them my way.
